Great Product

  • Excerpt: This is a great camcorder. The quality is very good. It's lightweight and user friendly. I have two other JVC camcorders and they are all very easy to operate. I only with this one had Live Streaming connection. Otherwise it's great.

Nice camera, but not a superb low light, noisy as hell

  • Excerpt: Overall, this is a good camera for a 1/3 inch sensor; images are nice, but you need to play a little bit with your color settings in order to make them look good. The main downside of this camcorder is its low light performace: even at 0 dB, this camera introduces a lot of noice when under very dim...

Now used for 12 months

  • Excerpt: My initial impression on unboxing was one of horror. It felt flimsy. On opening the LCD screen, it creaked and felt like it would snap off and was wobbly, it had to go back for repairs. The SD card flap is flimsy and the on/off button does not feel like it will last.

Great Handheld "Studio" Camera

me "not me", Amazon
13 July 2015
  • Summary: To begin with, we own three of these cameras and are thinking about buying a fourth this summer. We have been very pleased. We use the HD-SDI out to feed a switcher that goes to the scoreboard video screen for our Division 1 football program and indoors to feed the screens for basketball, volleyball...

Had to buy a second one

18 January 2015
  • Excerpt: After buying the first one approximately a year ago I had to buy a second one. These cameras are great. The only thing I think they need to do if they every rebuilt the camera is maybe a larger view finder.

Excellent picture quality and options for pro but Annoying motor noise

Al, Amazon
14 January 2015
  • Summary: Update: I have decided to replace it with a different brand, mainly due to Annoying motor noise and its big size. External mic solves the noise problem though. I purchased it from another retailer few months ago, so far I am very happy with it. Very good picture quality.

11 November 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a very good camera for run and gun journalism, it has an amazing zoom and all the necessary features to work well and deliver professional work. The white balance is sometimes tricky to manage and the colors of the LCD screen are not that reliable, usually the quality of the footage is...
